Great hotel even though 1 of our 4 reservations had been cancelled in error by the hotel the lovely front of house staff quickly found another room to sort it. The concierge service was lacking and parking in scarce, there was far too many taxis in the loading area to use the valet service without backing up traffic while you...

We only stayed here one night, fortunately. Our room looked out onto a very close office building so we had to keep our curtains permanently closed. We also felt cold during the night. My husband didn't like having to lose the car to the valet service as soon as we arrived. The other option is to park on the street...

Hi there, We are sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your stay at Rydges. Our rooms types are tiered depending on the view, so should you choose to stay again, we recommend booking a room with a city or harbour view instead of our lead in room, which you picked. Regarding our valet service, we are surprised to...

Only spent one night here but found the location excellent for exploring Wellington. Breakfast was well presented and thought out - a real treat. Our room was large, clean, modern and well appointed. Valet parking enabled us to part with our car directly in front of the hotel, which was most welcome after a long journey.

I asked to be place in a room next to my daughter in order to make baby sitting my grand daughter easier. The person dealing with my request was most accommodating and pleasant as well. How refreshing.

Well appointed room with good wifi, comfortable bed and a decent bathroom. The hotel has a very nice restaurant bar in the lobby, and is located handy to Parliament, the train station, and waterfront.

Rydges Hotel is located on Featherston Street which is one of the main drags in from the north of the city and the area has a busy and lively feel to it. This is carried over into the public areas which were also pretty lively as befits a city centre hotel. Internal decor tended towards darker shades of brown so...

Can't think of one thing I didn't like about this place. Service was impeccable, location perfect and rooms modern and clean. Staff were always friendly and accommodating. Highly recommend staying here when visiting Wellington. Pool and gym is currently being renovated, however we were advised of this via email before we arrived.
